Every little girl dreams of being a princess and where else can you find the most popular princess characters than Disney. Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Ariel, Jasmine and Aurora are characters that every girl can relate to. I know my sisters and I were all princesses at one time or another for Halloween and I think most women can say the same thing.
Disney sure makes it easy with all the wonderful characters not only in their big screen movies, but on the Disney Channel as well. I know I’ve seen some wonderful characters trick-or-treating from these movies:
- The Lion King
- Toy Story
- Monsters Inc
- Power Rangers
- 101 Dalmations
And the list goes on and on. I remember last year my niece wanted to be Hannah Montana so badly that she just couldn’t believe that her mom could not find the costume anywhere because it sold out so quickly. That’s why you may think it’s way too early to even think about a Halloween costume, but I’m telling you it’s not.
I don’t know about you, but my daughters could not get enough of High School Musical last year. They must have watched the original and High School Musical 2 a dozen times. Did you know that the original musical was released on January 20, 2006 and was one of the most successful Disney Channel Original Movies produced. The film’s soundtrack was the best-selling album that year. According the USA Today, the Nielsen ratings reported that on August 17, 2007, 17.2 million viewers tuned in to watch the premier of High School Musical 2 on the Disney Channel making it the most watched cable telecast in history. Well guess what all you High School Musical fans? This year on October 24, Disney will be releasing “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” and it will be the first film in the series to open not on the Disney Channel but on the big screen in movie theaters! Since 2006 Disney has kept all the star characters of this franchise, Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, Ryan, Chad and Taylor top selling costumes for Halloween and it looks like they’re going to do it again this year!
So whether you like a traditional classic princess or superhero costume or a more “hip” costume like Hannah Montana or High School Musical, Disney has it all!
